against my hand ~ Hafiz


Against My Own Hand

You are
A shy divine deer
That I cannot cease tracking.

Though only once of late
Did I get so close
To see

My own face and heart

In Your wondrous soft eyes.

Only once of late, Beloved,
When I thought that I had You
At last cornered

Come to know
The sublime beauty of God’s body

Against my own





One thought on “against my hand ~ Hafiz
